HP Printer Chief: 'We Could Ink Jet Anything'

A lot of interesting things are happening with ink jet technology, including DNA sequencing. Are you going to be part of these markets?

Joshi: We want to be part of supplying the technology. It's a long lead item, we don't think that's the kind of business we want to be in. Inkjet is nanotechnology. We developed a pump that accurately delivers nanoliters and we make a half billion of them a year. It's high volume, high production. Instead of ink, put in a drug and use it for drug delivery, or DNA sequencing. You can use it for all kinds of stuff. Our core competency is in making a pump to accurately deliver liquid. We are very interested in supplying the technology, but commercializing that and go to market is far away from our core.
